Bragging Rights!!

Our eldest son Chris, and his wife Julie, and their (almost) 2 yr old son had a little addition to their family today!

Lauryn Makenna Gracie was born this morning at 8:36 AM. She weighed in at 6 lbs 14 oz and was 20" long. She is a beautiful little girl with rosy cheeks and red rosebud lips. We are so very, very happy!

Here she is:

Isn't she gorgeous?

Congratulations Chris and Julie! We're looking forward to a bright future for this little one!

Thanks for letting me brag just a little! =D
